Purchase: Tab down to select course: CHM2051 Honors Chemistry Soft cover custom bundle (book + notes): ISBN‐10: 1‐133‐43216‐6, ISBN‐13: 978‐1‐133‐43216‐6 Description: CHM 2051 is a lower enrollment honors, second semester of general chemistry. Topics include chemical equilibria, acid‐base and aqueous equlibria, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemical devices, descriptive inorganic materials, transition metal coordination, and introductory organic chemistry. Prerequisites: CHM 2045 with a grade of “B+” or higher. Attendance: Attendance will not be taken, but it is highly recommended that you attend every lecture. Remember that your instructor writes the exams. Therefore, concepts emphasized in lecture should be given top priority. Staying home and “reading” the textbook, studying the content on Sakai, and cramming for exams will not work in CHM 2051! Missing just one class (which is two periods long) is a proven effective way to be left behind. Homework: Problems will be assigned from the end of the chapters. Homework will be handed in to your TA at the beginning of class on the Tuesday due date. Late work will not be accepted. There will be 12 homework assignments, and you will be allowed to drop your two lowest scores. Each homework assignment will be graded on four (4) point scale: 4 = flawless; 3 = good but not perfect; 2 = average effort; 1 = poorly presented; 0 = incomplete or not submitted. Mini‐Exams: Twelve (12) mid‐semester 20‐30 minute exams will be offered on Tuesdays at 10:40 AM sharp starting on January 24th. Two of these exams will be dropped. Each exam will be graded with a whole number on a 10 point scale: 10 = A; 9 = A‐; 8 = B+; 7 = B; 6 = B‐; 5 = C+; 4 = C; 3 = D; 2 = E; 1 = E; 0 = E. Make‐up Policy: There will be NO make‐up exams given. A missed exam will count as a drop. Final Exam: A mandatory two‐hour final exam will be given during the last class on Tuesday, April 24th. The final exam will be worth 60 points. Calculators: Calculators are NOT permitted on exams. Cell Phones: Cell phones must be turned OFF during lectures and exams! Grading: Your letter grade will be based on a total of 200 points. Point ranges are fixed will NOT be “curved.” Letter grades will be available on ISIS, late night, Monday, May 7th. 12 Mini‐Exams (2 drops) 100 Final exam 60 12 Homework (2 drops) 40 TOTAL 200 Minimum Targets: 180 (90%) A‐; 160 (80%) B+; 140 (70%) B; 120 (60%) B‐; 100 (50%) C+; 80 (40%) C Grade point values: 4.00 A; 3.67 A‐; 3.33 B+; 3.00 B; 2.67 B‐; 2.33 C+; 2.00 C; 1.67 C‐; 1.33 D+; 1.00 D; 0.67 D‐. For more information: Sakai: All exam and homework scores will be under the “my grades” link in Sakai. Check Sakai frequently for content additions under the “resources” link and for class announcements. Do not email the instructor in E‐learning, please use for all course‐related email. GCLC: The General Chemistry Learning Center, a tutoring location, can be found in Flint Hall (FLI) 257. TAs will be available during most business hours Monday‐Friday. Any TA present in the GCLC is able to assist with topics from this course. If a TA is not assisting his/her students, he/she is supposed to help you. One should take serious advantage of this free resource.
